How You Can (Nearly) Travel Forever

6. Do Some Volunteering

Volunteering sometimes is akin to working for accommodation and board, but you’re usually doing it for a greater cause. Although there are some programs where you have to pay a hefty fee to participate, the majority will happily accommodate you for free.

The beautiful thing about volunteering is that it’s not only about saving money. When you’re helping locals building a school or maybe teaching English, you’re using your skills to create a better community, who’ll probably be forever grateful.

    7. Find Local Jobs

    Before you start handing out CVs everywhere, make sure you have the right to work in the country. Working for accommodation is OK because there’s no money involved, but getting a real job in another destination has to be done in accordance with the law.

    The best course of action is applying for a Working Holiday Visa. This visa tends to last for a year and are designed for travelers to work and travel in specific countries. It’s also worth checking if you can apply for another citizenship, and if so, just go to said country as you’ll have the same rights as any other citizen.

    8. Get Discounts for Longer Stays

    One of the first things you learn about long-term travelers is that they usually don’t hop from country to country every week. They tend to stay put for two to three months as they can absorb the culture and save money.


    Unless you’re traveling during the high season, hotel and apartment owners would rather have one guest for two months instead of five in the same period. It’s a win-win situation: they have financial stability and you get a super discount.
